Is it possible I am pregnant?

My boyfriend and I were playing around with our clothes on around a month ago, and he came on my arm, and I think I touched it. I forgot to wash my hands and a hour later I used the washroom, and I am afraid I contaminaited the toilet paper. I am not sure, though.

What are the chances I could pregnant from this, and the chances if the sperm got through pants because I think he touched my pants around my area after he touched some of his sperm.

The last time I had my period was October, and it was a month late by the time this happened, in November, and another month has passed, now in December, making me two months late on my period (with no sexual activity). It has also been a month since this incident happened, and I took several pregnancy tests that all came back negative (to make sure). I think I am just over reacting, but my period is normally on time, and hasn't beent his late in several years. I am not super surprised it is this late, but after the incident with my boyfriend I am just freaking out that there may be a chance that I am. I have no interest in children in this point in my life. I guess I am really asking for guidence. I am also not on birth control because I don't plan on being active for a while, and I don't really agree with pumping those hormones into my body. I don't even like taking medicine for colds.

But, I digress. Some help, insight, guidence, would be much appreciated at this point in time. Advice as well. Smile

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If pre-cum or semen has come in direct contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible (sperms do not pass through fabrics unless it is thin and lightly woven and there is presence of ample vaginal wetness). Sperms can stay alive for hours in moist and warm environment. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, and if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods) as well as regulate your periods. Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.

Are you late for your period? If so, have you taken a pregnancy test? What you are feeling could easily be PMS and just an indication that your period is coming on. You could also be preparing for early menopause. There is no way to tell for sure. My suggestion is to wait until you miss your period and take a pregnancy test.

If you haven't had a period in over 2 months, why have you not taken a pregnancy test?? It is not possible to get pregnant by what you described. But you also asaid you were already late for your period at that point so you could have already been pregnant. Take a test.

Yes, take a pregnancy test. It is not abnormal to bleed during pregnancy (it is also not NORMAL either) and if you are pregnant you need to be on prenatal vitamins immediately to help protect you from miscarriage. See your doctor immediate.

It could be your period. I don't know, I'm not a doctor. The only one who can tell you what is going on is your doctor with an examination.
